What You Need

  • wool or cotton sweater
  • hair dryer
  • boiled water
  • bowl

Follow These Steps

  1. Pour boiled water into a bowl
    Using hot water will help shrink the cuff.
  2. Dampen the cuff
    Dampen the loose cuffs of your wool or cotton sweater with some hot water and then re-shape the cuff as needed.
  3. Blow dry the cuff
    Dry the areas with a hair dryer—both the hot water and the dryer’s heat will cause shrinkage.

    Tip: Sometimes using a steam iron is enough to contract the fabric’s material.
